There is no better (or worse) advertising than word of mouth, which is what made my decision to bring my first Volvo to Swedish for an oil change (and the inspection that is included) an easy one. I have not been to another shop since, and don’t plan to. Over the years, the guys have done plenty of triage and necessary repairs. Always honest, they assess what is necessary, realistic, and possible. Since then I have upgraded the Volvo that I drive and I only trust bringing it to Swedish. I have recommended the shop to many people and without hesitation. The quality of work, honesty and down-to-earth friendliness of Swedish would be very tough to top.

I’ve been trusting the folks at Swedish Engineering West with the care and repair of my automobiles for over 5 years now. At each and every visit, Ed & his staff go beyond the basics of routine maintenance, accurate diagnostics and reliable repairs: I get an honest assessment of any safety issues, what my car needs right now, what it’s liable to need down the road, and the best way to avoid unpleasant surprises and unnecessary expense. As a result, my vehicles are lasting longer (and staying more reliable) than ever before. I’ve been recommending these guys to friends and co-workers since I realized they were worth talking about, and everyone who takes my advice ends up thanking me for the tip.
And to top it off: without exception, these guys are just plain good folks to get to know. It’s a pleasure to patronize a business that is so family-friendly and community-oriented.
We have been a customer of Swedish Engineering for over ten years. We have had our cars (2 Volvos and 2 Subarus) serviced at Swedish Engineering after disappointing results and over-charges at a dealer. They are fair and honest, something that is not the usual way of business in this field. They do not try to sell services that are not needed, but will always inform you what work will need to be done in the future. They have the best mechanics for both Volvos and Subarus and they really know what they are doing. They will be honest and tell what has to be done for your auto.
The diagnostics are superior. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Ed and his team will always call with estimates and return calls promptly. I cannot express myself better than saying Swedish Engineering is the place to bring your car for service. They deserve 5 stars.
Swedish Engineering West is my car’s best friend for servicing. They are honest and considerate in dealing with me, an owner of a twenty year old car, that my dying Mom wanted me to have forever in her memory. I feel certain that my car is in the best hands at Swedish Engineering West, where they help me to keep my car’s giver alive in my heart with their expert workmanship.
The first time I took my Subaru to Swedish Engineering, I knew immediately that I had found the right place. My car was in the hands of dedicated experts and I met the friendliest and most responsive front office team. They always made sure I got the best customer service, including timely transportation back to work, quick and reasonable estimates and sensible advice. ONCE I took my car to Swedish, I had no need to go elsewhere else for repairs or maintenance.
